MLB wrap: Luis Severino strikes out 11 in win over Astros


Yankees ace Luis Severino helped the Yankees to a 5-3 win over the Astros by striking out 11 batters in seven innings.

Severino, who improved to 8-1 with a 2.31 ERA this season with the win, allowed just two runs off four hits. He now has double-digit strikeouts in three of his last six starts.

Pirates at Cardinals 7:15 p.m. ET — The surprising Pirates will send breakout candidate Trevor Williams (5-3, 3.43 ERA) to the mound to face off against Jack Flaherty (2-1, 2.15 ERA) and the Cardinals. The NL Central has been one of the deepest, most hotly-contested divisions in baseball so far, and the Cardinals are just starting to get healthy.

Davis told reporters Thursday he was disappointed in Palmer’s comments. Obviously, it bothers me, Davis said, per The Baltimore Sun. It’s disappointing that when things are obviously not going the way that I want for that to be called into question by two guys that I have a lot of trust, have a lot of faith in, that I’ve had a good relationship [with] for a number of years. (Davis and Coolbaugh were together in the Rangers’ system before reuniting in Baltimore.)

Coolbaugh told reporters his offseason one-on-one work with Davis was limited. I saw Chris three times, and I threw to him, and that was it, Coolbaugh said, per The Sun.

Palmer expanded on his comments Thursday during MASN’s O’s broadcast, and he didn’t back off at all.

He needs to make adjustments, and I’ll tell you what — Scott Coolbaugh, he had him in the minor leagues and said he was the last guy to leave the ballpark at night. I think he has to get back, Palmer said, per The Sun.

It just doesn’t happen at this level. It doesn’t matter how much money you’re making. It’s not about how much money, how long your contract is (Davis has four years remaining on a seven-year, $161 million pact). Are you doing the work to get better? I think that needs to improve. I stand by that. I think he does it and I hope he has success, because he’s a better player than he’s showed.

What can Falcons do to fix Julio Jones’ contract?


The Falcons are talking to receiver Julio Jones about potentially fixing his contract. But what can Womens Jason Hammel Jersey the Falcons realistically do?
Rams New Jersey Shop
The answer to the question will have ramifications not only for Jones but also to any other Falcons who want a premature contractual adjustment, especially since Jones has three years left on his prior deal.

Through it all, the Falcons http://www.giantsfootballofficialprostore.com/giants+carl+banks+jersey hold the cards. Whether and to what extent they’re willing to overlook that will determine whether and to what extent they’re willing to give him more than the $34.426 Carl Banks Jersey million in non-guaranteed salary he’s due to make through 2020.

The big right-hander from Auburn has four good-to-great pitches and commands each well. A two-time All-American has a 10-5 record this season with a 2.95 ERA and dazzled in his most recent start with 11 strikeouts in seven innings while allowing just two walks and four hits against Army in the Raleigh Regional on Saturday.

If taken with the top http://www.authentickansascityroyalshop.com/Jason-Hammel-Jersey pick, Mize will be the first SEC pitcher to be selected No. 1 since Vanderbilt product David Price in 2007 to Tampa Bay.

Singer was selected as SEC Pitcher of the Year over Mize just last week after posting a career-best 2.25 ERA and holding hitting to a .186 batting average.

A tall, gangly righty (6-5, 180 pounds), Singer has garnered a lot of attention since high school as he was drafted in the second round by the Blue Jays in 2015. He has a fastball that consistently hits 95-96 mph and an above-average slider and changeup.

Rougned Odor’s slide into Andrelton Simmons brings Anthony Rizzo play to mind


The Rangers’ Rougned Odor knows all the tricks around the second-base bag. He tried to pull one of them Friday night against the Angels’ Andrelton Simmons, and that almost led to a brawl.
Youth John Henson Swingman White Nike Jersey: NBA Milwaukee Bucks #31 Hardwood Classics
From this vantage point, the play looked similar to Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo’s attempt to break up a double play in Pittsburgh on Monday. Major League Baseball eventually took a dim view of that play after umpires initially deemed it legal. MLB has has yet to comment on Odor’s slide, which umpires also decided within the rules.

Backing up a bit, here’s what happened Friday:

Odor tried to break up an eventual game-ending double play in the ninth inning by spiking Simmons in the left shin as he slid near the base. Simmons managed to turn two anyway, with help from first baseman Albert Pujols. Afterward, Simmons pushed Odor, then pointed to his leg to let Odor know he clipped him.

Odor didn’t appear to be sympathetic. The benches soon gathered in the middle of the diamond. Odor started jawing as he was being held back.

Odor’s slide happened http://www.officialvikingsjerseysstore.com/Ryan_Quigley_Jersey_Cheap four days after Rizzo clipped the legs of Pirates catcher Elias Diaz and caused a two-run error. On Tuesday, the commissioner’s office contradicted the Womens Trevor Williams Jersey umpires in that game and said that, in its view, Rizzo interfered with Diaz.

The Cardinals (35-28) are currently 3 1/2 games behind Ryan Quigley Authentic Jersey the Brewers in the National League Central, but are also 1 1/2 games behind the Cubs for second place.

Crash Davis, the switch-hitting catcher who made a career of swatting home runs across this baseball-loving country of ours, smashed his 247th minor-league dinger Thursday. Nobody has ever hit more homers in the minors, and this record-breaker was vintage Davis.

Davis’ 1988 season started in the unlikeliest of places, back in the Class A Carolina league, with http://www.chargersfootballofficialproshop.com/Trevor-Williams-Jersey.html the Durham Bulls. His Triple-A contract had been bought out, and his new assignment was to mentor Ebby Calvin LaLoosh, a right-handed bonus baby the big club had invested heavily in. Davis wasn’t exactly thrilled. He was a veteran catcher, not a stable pony.

Brown is good, but he isn’t $6-million-over-Jones good.


Jones, though, has a staggering three years left on his deal. If the Falcons redid his contract (and they will), it likely would be unprecedented in the history of the team.
NFL Nike Youth Bryce Petty Navy Blue Alternate Limited Jersey - #9 New York Jets
Another motivating force behind the rash of contract squabbles in the NFL are the megadeals that have been handed out in the NBA in recent years.

Many NFL players and NBA players are close, and NFL players see the kind of money NBA players are making. Not the stars like Steph Curry, but mid-level players making tens of millions of dollars to be sixth http://www.officialnationalstore.com/Gio_Gonzalez_Jersey and seventh men on rosters.

After starting all 96 possible games through the first six seasons of his career with the Seahawks, Thomas missed five games in 2016 due to a hamstring problem and broken leg, and another two games in 2017. He even floated the idea of retiring when he broke his leg.

Thomas is still just 29, but his recent health problems and talk of potentially hanging up his cleats may raise concerns about http://www.seahawksfootballofficialonline.com/Dj-Alexander-Jersey.html his long-term future. But when healthy, he’s arguably the best free safety in the NFL.

Current Authentic D.J. Alexander Jersey deal: The four-year, $40 million extension Thomas signed in 2014 made him the highest-paid safety in the NFL. He’ll make $8.5 million in base salary in 2018, and has a $1.9 deferred signing bonus on the way.

But Thomas is set to become a free agent in 2019, and five safeties have received deals that average more than $10 million in the four years since he signed his extension.

Earlier in the week, Bryson DeChambeau also expressed some disdain Gio Gonzalez Jersey for the way Shinnecock was playing, calling Thursday’s round clown golf.

Johnson’s harsh comments also continued a weird Moving Day at Shinnecock Hills, which also featured Phil Mickelson purposely hitting a moving ball, which led to a two-stroke penalty as he made a 10 on the par-4 13th.

Mickelson’s outburst came after he rolled a putt well past the hole. He then quickly jogged to the ball and smacked it back in the other direction to prevent it from rolling downhill off the front of the green and back to the same spot he’d chipped from a few minutes prior.

Jets QB Teddy Bridgewater on how he’s fought back from devastating injury


One look at Teddy Bridgewater’s knee told the story. His life had irrevocably changed. 

It was August 30, 2016 and Bridgewater, the starting quarterback for the Vikings, had crumpled to the ground at the start of practice without being touched. Around him, teammates were recoiling and screaming in horror at what they’d seen. Bridgewater remembers feeling scared. But he also remembers feeling something else entirely. 

As gruesome as it may have seemed, I feel like I did a great job of remaining poised, Bridgewater said Tuesday before the Jets’ first minicamp practice. There were guys throwing helmets, guys on knees, and I didn’t cry, I didn’t worry, I just knew that it was in God’s hands. So I think I was impressed with the way I kept my faith.

I can’t even imagine, Bowles said. Having not been injured like that, I can’t even relate to someone having [been] injured like that. But just knowing Teddy’s personality and the drive he has, [his comeback] doesn’t surprise me.

We wish Adonis the very best as he determines the next steps he wishes to pursue, Virginia Tech coach Justin Fuentes said in a statement.

According to multiple reports, Alexander’s next step is expected to be applying for the supplemental draft this summer. If he’s selected, the team picking him will surrender their pick in the same round in the 2019 draft. The last player selected in a supplemental draft was offensive lineman Isaiah Battle, who was selected by the Rams in the fifth round in 2015.

Alexander has 125 tackles and seven interceptions over the last three seasons. His size — Alexander is 6’3″ — will likely be appealing to some teams, although previous suspensions at school and his dismissal will be weighed against any potential upside they may see in the former Hokie.

Department of Justice, he’s also likely to refuse to comply with a subpoena from a district court stemming from Kaepernick’s arbitration case.

Complicating matters further? Even if Trump was attracted to lock horns more directly with Kaepernick, doing so in a deposition could potentially expose the president legally if it is found he somehow bore responsibility for NFL owners refusing to offer Kaepernick a job.

The defensive help from Haniger helped Edwin Diaz post his 23rd save.

A rare two-sport star on the college level, Harris made five starts at safety for the football team last fall after converting from wide receiver during his redshirt sophomore campaign. One year after leading the Scarlet Knights Authentic Terron Armstead Jersey with 39 receptions for 481 yards, the Pembroke Pines, Florida, native had 41 tackles and tied for the team lead with three interceptions.

Harris recently joked he could try to become the next Deion Sanders or Bo Jacksonat some point and play both sports at a professional level, but added that was a conversation for down the road. To start, he’s http://www.officiallachargersshop.com/Derwin_James_Jersey_Cheap expected to focus on baseball, and begin his journey in the minor leagues fairly soon.

I think there’s a curiosity about him what if he just specialized in one sport? Rutgers baseball coach Joe Litterio said. I think that’s something we’ll find out, I guess, once he gets drafted and goes into baseball. But that’s what all the scouts like about him. He’s got so much athletic ability that if he really focuses on hitting, base running and outfield work, how good could he get?

Goldschmidt capped the ninth with another towering home run to center off reliever Brooks Pounders.

NEW YORK Standing off third base for the first time in his big league career, Masahiro Tanaka heard coach Phil Nevin yell for him to tag up when Aaron Judge lofted Charley Taylor Jersey a 264-foot flyball to Mets right fielder Jay Bruce in the sixth inning of Friday night’s Subway Series opener. The 29-year-old Yankees pitcher dashed home, needing 15 strides to cover the 90 feet to the plate as he tied the score with his first major Devin McCourty Authentic Jersey league run.

Obviously we needed a win, Tampa Bay manager Kevin Cash said. We needed Blake to step up. We need that stopper.

Snell (8-3), who was born in Seattle, gave up two runs and seven http://www.redskinsofficialonlinestores.com/Charley_Taylor_Jersey_Cheap hits. The 25-year-old left-hander walked two, recorded one strikeout, hit a batter and had two wild pitches.

Off what I had today, I’d say it was good, Snell said. Frustration with most (of my pitches). It’s a tough lineup. When you don’t have anything going and get through six, you’ve got to be happy with it.

Hernandez (6-5) allowed six runs and seven hits over three innings in his shortest start this season, a rematch of last Sunday’s matchup against Snell and the Rays in Seattle.

The life on the fastball (was) a little concerning today, Mariners manager Scott Servais said. To be effective he’s got to get up in the 89-90 range and today he didn’t even get there. But it’s not http://www.officialpatriotsnflauthentic.com/Nike-Devin-Mccourty-Jersey.html all about velocity, it’s about locating it. That really wasn’t on today either.

I don’t know the details as to why he hasn’t picked a home. I am sure he is being very thoughtful about it. I am sure he has good people talking to him, too. He has great relationships with Tony Romo and Jason Witten. I am sure at the end of the day he is being thoughtful about what his next steps should be. I am sure he is working hard. No one is rooting for Dez more than we are.

We have to look at it clinically, de Blasio added. If the new legal reality is this is going to be allowed everywhere, we have to obviously think about what it means for New York City and how to play the appropriate role.

But, you know, it’s one of those realities that should be looked at with a certain amount of Womens Jersey caution in my book.

Rookie wide receiver Christian Kirk spoke to reporters for the first time since reports surfaced of his Feb. 3 arrest outside the Waste Management Phoenix Open golf tournament on charges of destruction of property and disorderly conduct. He and a friend had been accused of throwing rocks at cars. Police said Kirk appeared intoxicated at the time.

The charges were later dropped.

Obviously there was a negative response to it, Kirk, a second-round draft pick out of Texas A&M, said of the publicity surrounding the incident. But you’ve just got to block those things out and hold true to who you are and move on.

Kirk was a top high school prospect born and raised in Scottsdale, Arizona. The Cardinals said they knew of the arrest when they drafted him but said they were confident it was not indicative of a larger problem.

It was awesome, Adam Thielen said of the time that he and Stefon Diggs spent working out with Cousins in Atlanta, via Sid Hartman of the Minneapolis Star Tribune. I think the biggest part of that was to get to know him on a personal level and just try to get that first initiation of how he likes guys to run routes and what he feels comfortable doing, and then just try to get on the same page. I think it was a really good start for Diggs and I to get a jump start on that.

Part of the transition entails getting to know how Cousins does things, especially when the Vikings receivers have had in little more than two calendar years to work with Teddy Bridgewater, Shaun Hill, Sam Bradford, and Case Keenum.

The Eagles harassed quarterbacks with wave after wave of pressure last season. Offensive lines couldn’t consistently handle all the talent up front for 60 minutes.
